BORIS Johnson must rapidly rediscover his mojo if he is to win over the country again.

That’s the message from voters ahead of Thursday’s local elections in which Conservatives face a potential drubbing.

The PM’s magic touch won the party an 80-seat majority in 2019, and he swept the board in last year’s council seats ballot.

He even captured the ex-Labour stronghold of Hartlepool in a stunning by-election victory, a high point in a string of Red Wall triumphs.

Even his courageous leadership over the Ukraine war may not be enough to turn the tide in his favour.

So it is crucial the PM regains his can-do confidence and energy to tackle issues closer to home.

He must act quickly to help people terrified by the cost-of-living crisis.

He must restore the trust of Red Wall ­voters by ensuring levelling-up becomes a reality.

And he must get lazy civil servants off their sofas at home and back into their offices.

The public won’t stand for more delays in issuing passports or granting visas to Ukrainian refugees.

Boris needs to get Britain moving again.

In any normal workplace he would have been out on his ear immediately.

Instead he referred himself to the standards commissioner and tried to hang on.

The MP for Tiverton and Honiton will be no great loss to the Tory party.

But the tawdry spectacle will reinforce the view that Parliament is riddled with sleaze.

Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle should get his own house in order rather than squandering his time summoning newspaper editors to Westminster.
